A & W has a list of achievable goals and objectives to tackle including improving economic development, providing community resources and street cleaning, and implementing public safety zones with the creation of sustainable greenspaces. The organization serves as the mantle and guidepost for continued partnerships with social service agencies, faith based institutions, commercial operators, educational organizations, and aspire entrepreneurship.

During his 15-year career as a Youth Worker and Program Facilitator in Glen Mills, his focal point was, and is to be the social change agent in many youth’s lives by advocating for the youth and providing employment.
